Last night I experienced sudden pain in my upper abdomen as well as in my middle back. It would sometimes radiate to my neck. Pain in chest would get worse when I would take a deep breath. Felt a little light headed. Prior to I played in a soccer game but had no injuries to my abdomen or back, just some soreness in legs and a bruise on the inner part of my right leg. Had sudden sharp pain through my right upper chest but it was quick, happened a few times and went away. I took naproxen to help with inflammation as I believed it was muscular. I also spit up a little bit of blood but am no longer today. This morning the pain was not as bad but I feel a slight tightness in my chest and shortness of breath. Felt a little light headed as well. Chest feels uncomfortable when taking deep breaths but not as bad as before I had taken the naproxen. Soreness in body is gone but right leg that has the bruise still slightly hurts when walking. Should I take another Naproxen? Is this anything to be concerned about? If so, what could this be?

Chest pain, pain in right arm, tingling in left hand when i sleep, anybody had similar symptoms? Hi, i hope somebody can help me, I am a 24 year old male who suffers from central and left sided chest pain on almost a daily basis, the left sided pain is a stabbing pain and the central pain is a pressure feeling, i also get pain deep inside my left shoulder and arm and have tingling in my left hand when i sleep which disappears within 10 seconds of waking up. I also find myself short of breath sometimes. I have seen several doctors and a cardiologist who have been unable to find anything wrong with me, the tests i have undergone are several ECG s, a ultrasound on my heart, a scan on my lungs to check for blood clots and a heart x-ray. Doctors have concluded i may have a trapped nerve in my back which is causing the pins and needles, despite what the doctor has said i am constantly worrying about this and fear i am going to die in my sleep, i am also too scared to do any excercise that will increase my heart rate which i know is bad for my overall health. Can anyone help me?

I am sixteen and one day at football practice my heart seemed to beat way harder than normal, i could feel it through my whole body and when i felt my chest i could feel my heart beat way more than ever, and i also had chest discomfort and anxiety, ever since then my heart seems to beat harder all the time, and after exercise it takes longer to calm down, i will also get random chest discomforts on certain days,my EKG, holter moniter, and event moniter results have came back normal, but months after that day at practice my heart continues to beat hard, and when i feel my friends hearts through their chests i can barely feel theirs beat,is there anything that could cause this change, because my heart never did that before.
